This cheese board is simple and beautiful, yet very practical. They measure 5" by 8" and have a bevel on the bottom edges for ease of pick up. They're made from maple or cherry. If you don't specify which one you like, we'll just send you what's on top of the pile. We started out making these pieces from our scraps and now they are one of our best sellers! A cheese knife is included in the purchase price and we'll tie it to the board with some of our famous raffia. These make a great gift paired up with someone's favorite cheese.
